Even though I’m Canadian, because of all my writing, both through other authors and readers, I’ve become quite immersed in the US culture. So even though Thanksgiving and Black Friday are US holidays, I can’t help but feel more involved.
I won’t go shopping on Black Friday, but I will watch the news to see the biggest hotspots. As well, this is the “official” launch of the 2012 Christmas Shopping Season.
Not being a shopper, I am always amazed at the lengths people will go through to either get the latest bargain, or the newest update/version of a product, or simply be one with the crowd of shoppers.
I don’t mind standing in line if it’s for a good reason, but to many, especially on Black Friday, it becomes an adventure. I like adventures as much as the next person, but for me, I like to make sure that my lastest adventures isn’t going to be too far from the restroom… I am not really fond of standing in a line for hours. I’ve seen pepole stand in line overnight, which means camping, and/or partying until the store doors open.
Sorry, not for me. I like my warm bed, my little dog (and my big husband) too much for that. I think I’ll do most of my shopping online this year.
